I just can't find enough reviews because this phone was just released. Could any of you tell me wether this phone has top-notch reception comparable to the v710 and the v265? Also I'd like to know wether the fact that this phone is not tri-mode will affect the indoors reception that has been so praised and welcomed in the v710 and v265.
I have had the E815 for about a week now and the reception is Crystal Clear. Me and my boss use to have V710's and the quality of the conversation was alright. Now that i have the E815 my reception blows his V710's reception out of the water. You can tell there is more static on his end and such there is such a huge difference! Its a really good phone. Also i don't have a problem with the reception whether its indoors outdoors in my car or in the supermarket or wherever i may go.
I'm in the NYC area, and I've noticed that I'm now able to make and recieve phone calls at places that I was not able to when i had my v710.
Unless VZW has put up some new towers in my area, the reception in the e815 is definitely good.
By the way, in the past I've noticed that the reception my v710 was getting was better than the reception on many other phones both from VZW and others. The reception on this phone is better than that.
It is important that it works in nyc. That's where i live. I live in a Bronx building surrounded by other buildings which seem to hamper the signal in my super-crappy Motorola v220. I just can't make or receive phone calls in my building with said phone.
holding my friend's V710 next to my E815 while driving in a car and watching the service graphs go up and down my phone consistently had an extra bar or so of reception and that's with antenna's down of course.
